Calm seas, some sun and many, many humpback whales made sure we had an amazing time on every single tour today. To be precise, we encountered at least 15 different humpbacks on every tour! They could be found alone, in pairs or in groups of up to 6 whales feeding together. Often they came super close and surfaced directly in front of us. All for us was left to do was turn off the engines, sit back, relax and enjoy natures wonderful show. Even our staff who go out almost every day are absolutely in awe of what is happening here at the moment. Currently whale watching in Akureyri is really something not to be missed on a vacation in Iceland.
